T20 Domestic Cup

T20 tournament to go ahead without sponsor

2016-10-25 12:43

Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has confirmed that this year's domestic T20 tournament will go ahead without a title sponsor. 

The tournament had previously been sponsored by RAM Hand to Hand Couriers, but the relevant parties could not agree on a renewed deal ahead of the 2016 edition. 

RAM had said at the beginning of the year that they were considering their future association with the tournament given the match-fixing scandal that had rocked the 2015 showpiece, but both CSA and RAM have since confirmed that the fixing drama had nothing to do with them parting ways. 

CSA had been hopeful that they would find a new sponsor for the tournament, but it was confirmed on Tuesday that the competition would go ahead without one. 

The competition will now be called the 'T20 Challenge'. 

CSA have also announced plans to possibly extend the tournament to eight teams in 2017 in an attempt to lure more international players and ultimately improve its commercial success.

This year's tournament is set to get underway on November 12 and concludes on December 16.
